2016 Taurus Research and Review

The Ford Taurus has held a spot in Ford's lineup since 1985 and it continues to be a solid choice in the large sedan segment. Coming into the new model year, the 2016 Ford Taurus arrives with select new features, including three new exterior paint colors, SYNC 3 technology and a fresh standard feature for SE models. Outside of these enhancements, the Taurus still offers a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine option, ample space in the trunk and a comfortable ride for all occupants. Look over Peoria Ford's 2016 Ford Taurus review to discover further details about the updated model and its collection of features.

Offered on every 2016 Ford Taurus in the Phoenix area are three new paint color options: Blue Jeans, Guard and Shadow Black. The top-of-the-line SHO model also receives Blue Jeans and Guard as available color options, along with Absolute Black. In addition to these new choices, all Taurus SE models now come with a standard rearview camera, which works to assist drivers when parking in tight spaces. Ford's new SYNC 3 infotainment system has also been added to all models, replacing the previous MyFord Touch system. Intuitive, responsive and faster than the outgoing system, SYNC 3 keeps drivers connected while navigating the open road.

A 288-horsepower 2.5L V6 comes standard on the 2016 Ford Taurus in Peoria. It's matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and can produce an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway with front-wheel drive. For those who want a little more power, SE and SEL models can be equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder, exerting 240 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. However, if you want top-of-the-line power, go with the Taurus SHO, which sports a turbocharged 3.5L V6, generating 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.
